I’m using smile direct club for literally the smallest detail where one of my top middle teeth are slightly further forward than the other and my bottom ones just need adjusting the smallest bit. As there is no rotation or anything complicated involved, do you agree that this treatment is sufficient as the complex abilities of Invisalign wouldn’t be required to be used to achieve my desired outcome? Btw very helpful explanation👍
Hello Adam! Thanks for your question. Hopefully, we can guide you in the right direction. First of all, I just wanted to say congratulations on your smile journey. It’s going to be totally worth it once you complete treatment. Here is the thing, Invisalign actually offers a package for minor adjustments that are very similarly priced to other competitors such as Smile Direct Club. It’s called Invisalign LITE. It caps the number of trays that you get at 15 which should be very useful for someone who only needs a small amount of treatment.
In regards to you going through with Smile Direct Club, if you haven’t already paid and committed to the aligners then you should absolutely consider this option instead. With Invisalign LITE you also get the attachments and all the additional benefits that we mentioned in the video. We’ve actually had a few patients stop their treatment with SDC and switch over to get Invisalign treatment at our office. The results that they got just were not up to the standards that the patient had. However, it really depends on each patient. If you have gone through with treatment I would make sure to contact your family dentist and ensure that the dentist monitors your treatment much more closely and the entire time that you’re going through with it. You cannot rely on the SDC provider to give you proper advice without seeing you in person, that’s why it’s critical that you visit your dentist on a very very frequent basis to ensure that things are going in the right direction and that there are no critical problems with your alignment. Just make sure you keep your dentist in the loop.
I hope this answers your question! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask. We would be more than happy to help guide you in the right direction. We would really appreciate it if you could subscribe to our channel as it would help us educate more people through the youtube algorithm. It would mean a lot to us.
@Dental Now Panorama I have seen this online and am definitely considering doing this now. Is Invisalign lite the same as Invisalign express or is express quicker?
It’s pretty much the same thing, we just have different names. You should just remember that Express/Lite pretty much means 15 trays and under with refinements. The thing is, this will only work if you do indeed have a minor problem. A dentist will be able to let you know exactly how many trays he thinks this will take and whether or not Invisalign Express/Lite will work. You should consider visiting multiple dentists and getting multiple opinions so that you can know exactly what your orthodontic condition is like.
@Dental Now Panorama ok I will do that. Thanks very much for your advice!
hi, im not sure if i should buy invisialign, braces, or DTC aligners? i think my teeth need a couple of corrections like my overbite and a tooth and an andana in my lower teeth… thanks
Hello Joseph! Thanks for watching our video. We will mention this right off the bat, it’s quite hard for us to give you an opinion without seeing you in person first. This is the only way for us to be able to determine what’s best for you. However, if you have an overbite there is a reasonable chance that Invisalign may actually work for you. We’ve been able to treat patients who have had an overbite in the past. Braces have also worked but it’s much harder for us to get a refined treatment plan similar to that of Invisalign.
DTC aligners will have a really tough time fixing your actual problem, they are mainly meant for minor corrections. We would suggest that you visit a few dentists or orthodontists for some free consultations so that you can find the best treatment options for you. We would suggest you look for dentists that have a really high ranking on the Invisalign provider such as diamond or platinum this means that they have done a lot of cases over the last 6 months which means they may have encountered another problem that might be similar to yours. We hope this answers your question. We would really appreciate it if you could subscribe to our channel! It would mean a lot to us. We are trying to help as many people as we can and this really helps with the youtube algorithm.
@Dental Now Panorama thankss
You’re welcome! 😊
Hi, I’m not sure which Aligners I should get that will GUARANTEE the results that I want. My teeth are not bad, infact they are all straight but I have small gaps on the top 5 of my teeth and at the bottom there is a small gap to my right. Apart from that there is nothing wrong. I don’t want to pay too much but if it will give me the results that I want them it’s an investment I’m willing to make. I don’t want to pay thousands just to not get the smile that I want. Which would you suggest?
Hello Rachel, thanks for your inquiry. Hopefully we can help you down the right path! Truth be told, orthodontic treatment is really based on the experience of the dentist doing the treatment. With something like Invisalign, it’s actually the responsibility of the dentist to design the smile that you want and it’s his job to make sure that everything is taken care of. The thing is, you have 5 years with Invisalign to get everything right. With smile direct club you’re really limiting yourself to the decision of a dentist that you’ve never met before!
At the end of the day, because this is a large investment, our recommendation would be for you to make sure that you visit multiple different dentists who have significant experience with Invisalign. You’ll be able to tell based upon their Invisalign provider rating. Diamond, platinum, etc. The diamond ones are the guest and you know they’ve done the most amount of cases in the last 6 months.
The other thing is, most dentists will not guarantee treatment. It really depends on the individual dentist performing your treatment and not necessarily on the product itself.
With Invisalign, there’s a lot more leeway and you’ll always be able to get refinement trays if you’re unhappy.
I hope that this has helped answer some of your questions! If you have any others, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We’d be more than happy to help.

Thanks for watching! Sorry for the confusion
I went to a dentist that only made me feel worst about my teeth and didn’t want to help me because I don’t have insurance he estimated 10,000 worth of work when I already had braces and just really want to close a gap where my top teeth shifted from not wearing my retainer and he’s the 4th dentist I went too I don’t have the time money or energy to keep going from dentist to dentist being let down I want to go to my original orthodontist but I know I can’t afford his work again because I’m no longer a child 250 -300 down a set of retainers like the ones I been had a few months of tightening and then a permanent retainer to keep them in place no more estimates of bills as expensive as a car no more dentists looking down on me because of my financial status
Sorry to hear about this! We always recommend that patients visit as many dentists as possible so that they can learn about their condition.
Can anyone recommend Invisalign place in Los Angeles? I have a single crooked tooth and need consultation on the treatment
Invisalign itself has a really cool directory on their website that you can type your ZIP code in and it’ll allow you to find some dentists around your area. We would highly recommend that you visit multiple orthodontists and dentists and not just go for the first one available on the site. We usually recommend that you get a few different dentist opinions about your smile!
Hi Sir! I’m about to start my Invisalign treatment. Could I please get your mail ID, I wanted to discuss about my case. Thank you. 🙂
THE REASON SO MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING AFTER OTHER COMPANIES, OTHER THAN INVISALIGN IS BECAUSE OF THE PRICE!!!! PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO TAKE A CHANCE WITH THEIR TEETH WITH OTHER COMPANIES. INVISALIGN IS EXPENSIVE TO THE AVERAGE PERSON, THIS HOW THESE OTHER COMPANIES WERE ABLE TO GIVE THEM A” RUN FOR THEIR MONEY”.
thanks for watching! We would highly recommend that patients don’t take a risk with their smile to save a few bucks. Invisalign also has extremely competitive prices, and it all depends on the dentist you visit and the location you’re located in
@Dental Now Panorama OF COURSE YOU RECOMMEND PEOPLE NOT TAKING RISKS, BUT THE FACTS ARE PRICE!! WE ALL KNOW THAT INVISALIGN IS THE BEST, BUT BECAUSE INVISALIGN THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE COMPETITION, AND STOOD BY THAT EXPENSIVE PRICE RANGE!!! THAT GAVE ROOM FOR OTHER COMPANIES TO COPY, COPY, COPY WITH A LOWERE PRICE RANGE THAT PEOPLE CAN AFFORD. OH AND EVEN IN “LOWER INCOME” COMMUNITIES INVISALIGN IS EXPENSIVE AND IN THESE SAME “LOWER INCOME” COMMUNITIES THEY WOULD RATHER PUT THE METAL BRACES IN THEIR MOUTHS BECAUSE OF COST/PRICE. YOUR VIDEO IS 100% RIGHT, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIDEO, MANY BLESSINGS
@Dental Now Panorama irs not about saving a few bucks its about not having those bucks to begin with.
Not everyone is looking for just a nice smile some actually need it and have no choice but stay with the issue or take a chance on cheaper options
@Kaylee Renee many practices such as ours actually offer really affordable monthly payments plans. in order for us to really help our patients out, we actually give it to them for no additional interest payments. price should never be a factor when it comes taking care of your oral health as it only gets more expensive if you don’t address it right away.
This sounds like a sales pitch.
Very interesting! Please one question, can we make Invisalign with the media I700?

Seems a bit biased. 😅 Asking a dentist if u should go with a product that sends u to them or not
It’s not biased at all. We always recommend that people consider multiple dentists so they’re making it the best advice about their orthodontic condition. We always recommend that people understand what they need for their teeth, and what factors are involved when it comes to straightening up teeth. When it comes to someone like smile direct club, You don’t actually get to see the dentist. It’s really hard for them to get a true assessment of the condition of your smile without carefully reviewing you in person and taking complete measurements of your smile. We’ve always made it abundantly clear that we consider visiting multiple dentists a necessity as it’s critical to not just take the advice of the first dentist you see but to really learn and understand about your specific condition and what it takes to transform your smile. Hopefully this helps guide you in the right direction. Thank you so much for your comment.
Hii sir kya ye alinger night m lgana pdta h only and 1year m gap band ho jata h
no they don’t make their own trays, the company that does that tray is DDD(3D systems). I am a dentist and used Invisalign over 5 years and have studied deep enough since I invest in their stocks Align but when I realized Invisalign don’t print their aligners themselves I found 3D systems is doing that for them.
My teeth are straight with no gaps, I just want a wider smile, so my back teeth show more. Do you this is possible without Invislaign in your opinion, I am a student so on a budget? Thanks
Every dentist I come. Across that sales Invisalign patients don’t go back after there told they need 5500 dollars Invisalign or had Invisalign for 3 years and are wait until it’s done to leave. While the dentist gets kick backs for pushing Invisalign and levels.
Amazing informative video , this is exactly I was looking for to reassure my decision about getting Invisalign , thank you very much for this video .

I’m looking at candid and suresmile with my dentist. She said candid has no attachments but suresmile does. Do you have a recommendation between these two?
